Summer TV: 57 channels, and somethin' horrible on every one

Fat people dancing. Fat people passing gas. Stupid, bitchy high school students. Donald Trump gone bad. (Okay, Donald Trump gone worse.) When it comes to picking the summer's worst TV show, we've got an embarrassment of riches.

Remember when Oxygen--before it was acquired by NBC/Universal and was owned by people with brains, like Marcy Carsey, Tom Werner, Oprah Winfrey and Geraldine Laybourne--had reasonable shows, like a really enjoyable revival of the panel game, "I've Got A Secret"? The channel, once NBC got hold of it, came up with a slogan, "Live Out Loud." It also tossed out some decent shows and skewed its lineup to women 18-35(like "Dance Your A** Off." I won't watch it, either).


Ha! And I thought I was the only one who hated "The Philanthropist!"


The list of reality shows that leave you with a lower IQ is long. Dance Your A** off is certainly a contender.

I feel for you and Renee R. and Connie O., having to watch so much crap. But I guess the consolation is getting to write a snarky review...
